We love it here. Everyone is so engaging and remember us. It makes us feel like part of the family!
Consistently delicious food and great services. I usually have a seafood dish and enjoy the preparations.
Have visited several times and always with good result.
Excellent but very loud
The food taste never fail us to revisit for so many times ...
As always the service and food was excellent. The friendliness of the wait staff and bartender always is fantastic.
My husband and I dined here recently. We have some special dietary needs and the server was especially accommodating. All of the food came out as ordered based on those special needs. Believe me when I tell you that sometimes food is not served as ordered in other restaurants. I appreciate not having to wait for my food to be remade!
Our dinners were delicious! I had the scallop special served over wild mushrooms and asparagus. My husband had the chicken romana. It is his favorite dish. The food was excellent, as always.
The restaurant was busy, but not overly crowded. Our server was excellent and attentive. It was a fabulous dining experience. We will return to dine again soon.
Celebrating a 60th birthday.
This is probably THE best of the Francesca's in the Chicago land area.
Great food and great service. You really can't ask for anything more!! Love it here.
Highly recommend Francesca's. The Service is outstanding!!!
We’ve been to Francesca’s many times. Recently the service has really fallen off. I don’t know if our server had too many tables or what but we waited and waited. She seemed to disappear
We were shocked when the little 8” pizza came out looking and tasting like a mushy, frozen microwave pizza from 7-Then my mussels came in a thick sauce that looked and tasted like they opened a can of tomato paste and poured it on. What happened to this Francesca’s?! It was literally inedible. Sorry to have to say this, but someone should fix the food quick. I don’t think we can return.
A special setting to celebrate special moments. We enjoyed each and every course . The food is spectacular!
Excellent service, food choices are terrific, wonderful atmosphere. It’s one of our favorite restaurants!
Love Francesca's! Dennis is great!
Very nice we had reservations food and service top notch. Great place clean and friendly great happy hour😁
We loved our meal
Very average. Lots of tables open yet they stuck us in the back room. Food was bland and didn’t see our server very often. Would not go back.
Cute place and service was good, but expected the food to be better. Haven't been to a Francesca's for years, but I remember the food being much better and expected more from a big chain restaurant that's been around. The food was just so-so. Not sure if the thermostat wasn't working but it was way too hot in the restaurant and they couldn't get it to cool off.
Service was wonderful. They took care of our family and made it a great dining experience
This restaurant never disappoints. The short rib pasta dish is outstanding and I love the deals offered by this location. In addition, the wait staff is superb.
The food is always great but this time my salmon was the best ever!
Never disappoints wonderful meal with great friends
As usual, the meal at Francesca’s was impeccable. The drinks were excellent. I had a negroni, my husband a manhattan, and our friends had a vodka martini and a scotch.
Appetizers for: we split the carpaccio. Our friends had the bruschetta and the fried calamari. For entrees, two of us had the rigatoni, one had the special ravioli, and my husband had the monkfish. He thought it was overdone, but still delicious. The men opted for ice cream for dessert, and I had my usual profiteroles. This is a restaurant that is reliable and that we frequent because of its consistency.
Attentive service. Great Food. While somewhat expensive, it still presents good value.
A great evening with a group of friends was made exceptional by Francesca’s Amici — great food, reasonably priced excellent wine, outstanding service!
We were thrilled with the food, service and overall dining experience.
Great food fair prices. service was attentive and polite
Great food as always
Setup a reservation for Valentines Day and you could tell they over booked. Never stayed for dinner. Left at 8:40 since we had not been seated. Our reservation was for 8:00PM.
Lobster bisque smelled terribly fishy and tasted as bad. Two of three entree orders were wrong. Food quality was poor overall. This is the worst of their locations. All others much better. We live in area and this location is average on its best days. Won’t be back.
Awesome restaurant. One of the best around the western suburbs. Always great service and great food.
We attended during the extended Restaurant Week dates and it was wonderful. Excellent service, delicious food. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.
Felt like having dinner at a high end restaurant without the high end price.
Service and food was great!
To say that we absolutely love love LOVE this place is an understatement! The entire staff is like one big family! The staff, from the hostess desk to the waitstaff to the busboys, have a very long tenure... which speaks VOLUMES of the outstanding management team they've had in place for so many years!! It is our go-to spot for the BEST experience in food and service. I hope they are around for many many many more years in Elmhurst!!
We eat here frequently and the food is usually very good. Tonight both our meals were simply very bland. Kitchen had a bad night.
Waiter service was excellent, food preparation and presentation was very good. Noise level was high making normal conversation difficult.
Menu selection choices above par.
Portions larger than expected and beverages selection excellent
This was an anniversary dinner and the surprise dessert was a nice finish
Great location , service,and of course the food nice bar.
Reservation was for 5. They put us at a table for 4 then added a seat. I was jostled all night. Service was very poor. We were seated at 7:50 for a 7:30 reservation. We were almost the last patrons to leave the restaurant. The server did not check on us. Someone else brought food out. When we finally asked server to check on our food he did and it was brought out. However the salads had been sitting on our table for almost an hour before the entrees. No one ever came to remove salads.
We have been here several times... never disappointed. We love coming here since its just a few steps from York Theater. Service/Food on point, menu varied but not huge. Pasta/wine/crusty bread. Awesome!!
